"Patience, Humility, Manners, and Taste, common schools and kindergartens, industrial and technical schools, literature and tolerance, -all these spring from knowledge and culture, the children of the university.  So must men and nations build, not otherwise, not upside down."  W. E. B. Du Bois

This(2.4L 5 speed man)

Gets better fuel economy than this (3.5L auto 5)

2006-Chrysler-300-008.jpg

 

The truck uses 2L/100km less fuel. Ths is more common than i thought, SUV's and small trucks usually get around the same fuel economy as sedans. The running costs are basically the same too. I wish someone told me that when i was younger. I used to daily drive a first gen mx5 in the north of BC(painful in winter but i loved the car) and I averaged 8.5l/100km. If i would have known i could have had a truck like the first picture for the SAME running costs(and price) i would have probably switched.
